Mergers and Acquisitions

For most business owners, the sale or other transition of their business is the single most important, and perhaps the largest, financial event that occurs in their lifetime. Unfortunately, most owners don’t have an exit strategy for their business. And selling at the wrong time or without the right information can substantially lower the market value of the business. Whether your motivation for undertaking the merger or acquisition process is based on your desire to retire or succession concerns, the diversification of your assets, your desire to expand your capital, or the need for larger markets, Thaney & Associates CPAs, P.C. has the game plan for your organization.

We can assist you in all areas of stock or asset sales, mergers, or acquisitions. Our highly experienced merger & acquisition specialists provide insight and strategies on such matters as:

  • When is the right time to sell?
  • Should all or part of the business be sold?
  • Is the company ready for sale, or should the focus be on building value for a future sale?

Our merger/acquisition experts make a complex process simpler for you.
